Today was strange in so many ways.

With less than 48hrs to go, the forecast switched from pants to looking quite a good day. Arrived at 10:45 with Ben to find several pilots had already taken off. The sky looked great and a gentle breeze caressed the hill. All looked fab.

Then I took off, and it was clear that something wasn't quite right. Sun, clouds, a breeze and yet climbs were broken and capped at around 1800 ft. The first gaggle found something half decent and beamed out, but the rest of us struggled. I could see thicker clouds approaching so decided to go, low, with what I had.

This kind of set the tone for the day. A beautiful sky that didn't always work, large patches of sink peppered by the occasional bullet thermal. When I landed I looked up and sighed; defo a sailplane day!

The return trip was no less eventful. The taxi to Bedford did a great job, getting me to the station just in time for my train. Luckily the train was 5 mins late. However, I only had 6 mins to get my connecting train, but this was also late. Met up with Simon T and Dave B, and together we experienced rail travel at its most chaotic. Then we nearly missed getting off the train at Great Malvern, but fortunately the guard reopened the doors to let us off.

What a day!
